How do I delete a staff member?
While Gradelink highly recommends deactivating Staff accounts rather than deleting them, it is still possible to delete them.
That being said, there is one major restriction: you can't delete a staff account if it has any classes assigned to it. That includes classes in inactive terms. If you want to delete a staff account that has classes assigned to it, you will need to manually reassign every class to a different teacher.
Once you're certain the staff account has no more classes assigned to it, you can delete the account by following these steps:
- Click on the Staff tab.
- Select the staff account from the list on the left.
- Click Delete Staff in the top right corner.
- Click Yes on the confirmation window that appears.
Note: If you try to delete a staff account that still has classes assigned to it, the account will instead be made "Inactive". This is a security feature to prevent accidental deletion of data.
